Energy revolution to provide new opportunities for the microelectronics industry

In the past 10 years, China's GDP and energy consumption are essentially increased with the same percentage. And China's GDP to catch up with the United States, if you do not follow a low-power development path, the future is unthinkable. Only supported by new technologies and not to consume resources, characterized by advanced manufacturing is the basis for enriching the people. Microelectronics revolution in the energy industry will play an important role. 
Energy issues are the important topics for China and the world. Over the past 30 years, not only China's economic grows rapidly, but also it lead to the fast-growing energy consumption in 30 years. Energy shortages, climate warming and many other issues of economic and social sustainable development will be adversely affected. The integrated circuit chip as the core of the microelectronics revolution in the energy industry will play an important role. 
We have already seen the importance of integrated circuits to achieve low power consumption, and the application of microelectronics technology to reduce power consumption for the whole of society will be what kind of contribution? IC smart grid application is an example of the micro-electronics technology for energy-saving society. 
According to statistics, the world's total power generation capacity within the grid consumes about 40%. According to data provided by the U.S. Department of Energy, if the U.S. power grid efficiency is 5%, it’s also the savings if reduce the energy equivalent of 53 million cars produced carbon dioxide emissions. 
The building of smart grid is the effective way to improve power transmission, while the power of intelligent integrated circuit made of a higher demand. Smart grid systems to be able to sense overload and can allocate the power to prevent a system failure or to minimize the impact of failure. A smart grid is characterized by the use of digital technology, including the use of intelligent power consumption meter testing, through the network of sensors and computer system control burst generators, according to consumer demand, production of electrical energy, thereby enhancing transmission efficiency. 
Another feature of smart grid is to allow distributed alternative energy (solar, wind, biomass, etc.) into the grid. According to the U.S. Department of Energy predicts that by 2030, wind energy will provide 20% of U.S. electricity demand, which also integrated circuits and semiconductor power devices to provide a market opportunity. The formation of wind power is unstable alternating current rectifier device will need to convert it to DC, then convert the inverter AC power grid can be accepted after the delivery to the power grid to go.
The formation of the solar cell power generation DC, the same has to go through before it can convert the inverter grid. Both the rectifier and the inverter are the core of all power semiconductor devices. The distributed energy in the input grid in the process of measurement will have to rely on integrated circuits.
